    a $ tip on how to exit from Aruba to the USA



    If your destination is the USA, don't stop at the first duty free shop after
    Aruba customs.

    Wait and after the USA TSA inspection, then shop the duty free shops!

    cindy near gate 5 (i think) is a duty free shop AFTER we go thru us customs.
    hence really duty free!

    there really has to be some logical reasoning re: the duty free at the gate area. what i noticed last time were small shops, souvenirs but is there a full DUFRY liquor? i did not notice.

    There is alcohol and perfume for sale further down by gates 5 & 6.
    Gate 5 is where the Sbarro's is.
